Hwy 77 is a constant speed trap between many different police agencies Marion, Sunset, Sheriff, And there’s Jericho who is the worst one of them all – they ticket people all day and night for ridiculous speed amounts that are under 10 mph, The Arkansas State Police has launched investigations into Jericho PD before!
Hwy. 77, Crittenden County
We were traveling down hwy. 77, Jericho, AR, Crittenden County. As we approached a 45 MPH speed limit we begin to descend our speed. The speed dropped from 55 to 45 in just a matter of a few miles. We were attempting to slow down when we realized we were in a 45 MPH speed zone. The officer informed us we crossed the Jericho city limits doing a 51 in a 45 MPH speed zone. Which we didn’t question. But we were slowing down & it was 8:41 at night didn’t see the 45 MPH speed zone until we were right on it. We had no idea we were in Jericho city limits. This is a very, very small town. We feel the ticket was a little too much. $150 for 6 mi. over the speed.
